Please stop in between 1:30 and 5 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 12, at Houghton House, for the final review of Professor Rick Hauser's students' Flight 93 MM[m]M: Memorial Monument [mini] Museum. A weekend-long field trip took students not only to the crash site – a wind-swept, barren former strip-mine in the midst of the picturesque Laurel Highlands – but also to nearby architectural meccas Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob, homes designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
The students have spent the semester exploring the meaning of a memorial, of the tragedy in Shanksville; they have visited the site and explored ways to channel the energy of the site into a moving monument. They have produced some beautiful work—and this is their first design studio. It will be in the small gallery, which is on the main entrance level, at the end of the entrance hall and to the right.
